Mrs. Estronsky and the U.F.O

A novel by

"But it's my birthday. That isn't fair! Why should I get punished for my birthday? If I'm going to be punished, it should be on your birthday!" That's Jackie Riley's response when she receives a gift of piano lessons on her twelfth birthday. Her father and brother have moved to Wyoming and forgotten all about Jackie. The house is empty and her mother cries more than any mother should. How could piano lessons do anything but make it all worse? But when Jackie starts her lessons with Mrs. Estronsky, some unexpected doors begin to open. One October night, something comes flying through one of those open doors and leaves Jackie reeling in the middle of a whole new world - a world much bigger than the one she knew before. "Trust your own experience, Jackie," says Mrs. Estronsky. "It's the only truth that you'll ever know." Jackie tries out this new idea by interacting differently with her family and friends. Nothing changes - and everything changes - all at the same time.
